Krystle's Thoughts - Home again, Home again by Nadine Christian

Home again, Home again
Nadine Christian


One choice to make between two loves…but, who’s fooling who?

Home for Tina means family, Pitcairn Island and a job as an aircraft engineer. She’s not looking for love, so when pilot Blane Solis sweeps her off her feet, she is soon flying into the heady slipstream of romance…but, is he the one for her?

Tina’s childhood sweetheart, Connor Brown doesn't think so. What dark secret is Blane hiding, and why is he hell bent on ensuring Tina doesn't find out? Can Tina ever forgive Connor for what he did so many years ago?

One heart. Two men. A shattered past and an unsure future…with love on the line.

The author asked me for an honest review in exchange for a copy of her book, and when I finished reading it, I had a huge smile on my face. Thank you Ms. Christian for letting me read this!!!

Book 2 of “The Bounty's Retreat Series” is great, it had the same charming effect on me that the first book had. I love everything about Ms. Christian's writing, she pulls you in and really makes you feel like you're in the story, her attention to detail is flawless. I feel as though I may never have to travel to Pitcairn Island because I've already been there thru the description of her words!

Story starts out with a woman named Tina, who's come home to the island after being on the mainland for many years, attending school then work, etc...Now, she's to start a new job as an aircraft engineer; servicing the planes that fly between the mainlands and the island, but the one thing she wasn't expecting was her new boss to be her childhood love. Connor. Whom she can't stand, and is the reason she left the island for in the first place! Ahhhhhh, what a mess, I almost feel sorry for this poor girl, but it looks like she makes out alright in the beginning of the book by catching the eye of the pilot who's flown her back home, Blane. Who by the way is a serious charmer, I would have been swept right off my feet just as “Tee” was. I love Tina's nickname btw!

Soooo, two men vying for Tina's attention! Recipe for disaster, but oh so goooood! I really, really loved this book, and if you've read “Quintal's Return” you'll notice a few returning characters! That made me happy, :) The author is very good at having you feel what the characters are feeling, there were a few emotional segments in the book where I wanted to cry right along with Tina. Well done.

I tell you, if I ever did go to the Island of Pitcairn, I would be lost in translation. It took me a minute to get used to the dialect that they use, since the author implements some of it's use in her book, but I find it very neat! I'd love to hear it spoken aloud. I'd probably be lost and end up with a goofy grin on my face, but it'd be worth it! Definitely recommend this series to others, 5 stars!

Yorley nor need sleep to be bautiful. Yorley es beautiful.” – Connor to Tina.
